Briefing Note 

This Briefing Note is based on IPTI’s research report Supporting or Resisting Change: Elite Strategies in War to Peace and Political Transitions, funded by UK Aid from the UK Government. The project investigates the strategies elite actors apply in order to influence political change in support of or in resistance to political change processes, i.e. the objectives they pursue, and the approaches they use in order to achieve them. To this end, it reconstructs the patterns of elite behavior across 43 peace and transition processes
from IPTI’s qualitative database. This work builds on previous case study research conducted in the framework of the Graduate Institute’s multiyear project, “Broadening Participation in Political Negotiations and Implementation.”
